Tash Rabat Jun 10, 2012
If you like castles, fortresses, caravansarais, ruins and other forms of ancient, fortified architecture, Tash Rabat is worth your time and effort. Tash Rabat is an old caravansarai located on one of the old trade routes which connected Europe and Asia. Tash Rabat is located in Central Asia near the China-Kyrgyzstan border in the remote mountains of Naryn Oblast (province), Kyrgyzstan.

To get to Tash Rabat you will need to hire a taxi in Naryn city, the provincial center for Naryn Oblast. Your fare will dependn on your negotiation skills. Unless you speak Russian or Kyrgyz well, you will likely have to pay a hefty price considering the taxi drivers love to hike their prices when they encounter international travelers. Also, if you don't speak a local language such as Kyrgyz or Russian, you may be better off arranging the trip the one of the local travel NGOs. They can give a standard price and their drivers are typically vetted.

In the past there were yurts available at the Tash Rabat site for lodging purposes and the rate was reasonable. Additionally, they had horses available as well.
